I have these in my car and they look brilliant. I can highly recommend them; they fit perfectly and took five minutes to fit (including cleaning the sills first).

I notice you have a Titanium though, so it depends whether you'd want an S on the inside!

Your opinion counts! just was thinking same lines as you very taky but practical is good as the missus keeps trailing feet and other folk too but thought it being powdercoated it would be ok but didn't even think of it rubbing off lol

I'm not so keen on the inside ones either, now that I know what you were referring to specifically! Interesting idea though, and people have to try ideas and see how they go.

Instead of getting scuff plates for the inside to protect them, you can get a sort of vinyl wrap but transparent (for lack of a better way to describe it)

The fiesta mk7 5 door has it on the rear doors to protect the paintwork when getting in/out

Ford also used it on the focus mk2.5 in the boot to prevent a cable rubbing through the paint when it was opened/closed

They do similar things for mountain bikes that prevent cable rubbing through the paint work

Can't think of the exact brand name of it but the interior sill could be wrapped in this and probably wouldn't be that noticeable?

Done this to my 7.5 zs. Just google/ebay 3m protector wrap and it comes up.

Not sure about the internal scuff plates with the external, think it would be a lot neater looking if it was one or the other. It's basically like a carerra gt scuff plates.

I bought the ones from Ali express, any advice for fitting? See they have little peel off strips of stickers on back do they hold them or need something more? I cleaned and polished few days back but what do you suggest to clean with first as they may not stick to the auto glym?

Heat the scuff panels or the body?
